This is the kind of school that caters to one type of student- if you're a crafty, Christian majoring in Education, Nursing or Interior Design- you'll be very happy here. If not, then you will not be. The big issues with the school I have and why I would not recommend going here is firstly, administration is laughable. Registration for classes is idiotic- all students in the entire university log onto the same site at the exact same time in a desperate bid to register for classes before the server inevitably crashes. I also tried to get help for a certain scheduling issue and not once did the school help me fix the problem, even after I called repeatedly. This biggest issue with the school is that, other than ministries, there is NOTHING to get involved in. Club choices are anemic and Student Activities is unhelpful and hostile towards anyone who wants to make a new club. In conclusion, come here for the three good majors or if you're religious. If not, look elsewhere.
I love Anderson University! All the professors and most students are super great and love what they're doing and love the people they're with. I only have two drawbacks. The campus security team could be a lot kinder and they could be A LOT more responsive to students' complaints. That's the big one. The second is just a personal preference. Don't get me wrong, I love my school. But I do wish it was in a bigger area with more things. It's in a relatively small town with not much happening. But if you like that, that's great. I'm more of a city-person.
My school is great because the people there make you feel special and you are all part of a big family. I feel they care about everyone and want everyone to succeed in the career he or she has chosen to pursue. I can't wait to start this journey and see where my future goes from here. For instance we had base camp which allowed you to spend one night and kind of get a feel of what campus life was all about. I had a blast it was so much fun getting to know the people who were going to be in the nursing field with me. Anderson University is one of a kind!
